Brain Candy Classic

It's SO cliche for this to be one of my two favorite poems. I know. I can't help it. It's like a guilty pleasure. Same with "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening." So sue me.

Nevertheless, I find it delicious. Enjoy it again.

The Road Not Taken
by Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

What ever happened to rhyming poems? As for this guy Frost, I don't think anybody will remember slop like that. Keep on trying Bob. Keep on trying.
